Arjen Robben has set his sights on winning more silverware with Bayern Munich after signing a fresh one-year contract extension.

The Dutchman has put pen-to-paper on a new deal which will tie him to the Allianz Arena until the summer of 2018.

Robben joined Bayern from Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 and has played a key part in one of the most successful periods in the club’s illustrious history.

The 32-year-old has helped Bayern win 15 major trophies, with probably his most significant contribution being the winning goal as the Bavarians beat Borussia Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final.

Despite currently sitting three points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, the current campaign has proved trickier than expected following the arrival of coach Carlo Ancelotti in the summer However, they remain on course for a fifth straight domestic title, while they are 4.75 to win the Champions League, with only 4.20 favourites Barcelona ahead of them in the betting.

Robben will undoubtedly be a key part of their plans and appears as determined as ever to succeed.

The 89-cap Dutchman admits he is delighted to have settled his future and has now set his sights on helping the Bavarian giants win further silverware.

“I’m very happy that I’ll be playing a further year for FC Bayern,” he told the club’s official website.

“The club is one of the best in the world and Munich has become a second home for me and my family.

“I want to continue playing at the highest level and win as many trophies as possible.”
